I couldn't speak more highly of this haven of peace. Close enough to Kandy to get to places easily; far enough away to enjoy the sounds of the forest. Utterly charming, courteous and hospitable manager and staff (and their tubby dog Molly). Lovely large rooms, and quiet garden. Only a small number of rooms so the place is never crowded.... More

Only ten minutes by tuk-tuk from Kandy station, this hotel feels like a world apart. When I arrived, I was served afternoon tea in a reception room while my bags were carried to my room. My room was large and luxurious, and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel is set back from the nearest roads, and so my room... More

Lovely setting, delightful staff and very easy to get in to town. It's our first stop in Sri Lanka and we're impressed. No real complaints at all, but the garden could be made a little more of e.g. more seating areas. They have the pool ready to go too but, again, needs some loungers/ seats round it.

We spent 2 nights here at the start of our Sri Lanka holiday. The building and room were really quite impressive, far more than what you would get in any hotel. The staff do everything that they can to make your stay memorable and are really very good at what they do. They prepared dinner for us on one of... More

This place has an amazing setting. So peaceful from the buzz of Kandy yet easy to get into Kandy by tuktuk. Staff all so friendly and our room was large with a huge bathroom. Fabulous breakfast. No complaints at all!

Upon arrival we were served afternoon tea and cake which was very nice. The room was clean and comfortable and staff very attentive. Breakfast was quite savoury but very good. Very close to town and nice and quiet. Good value for money.

I stayed 3 nights at Sweet Cinnamon with my family. I highly recommend this place if you visit Kandy. It was raining throughout our whole stay so we were extremly happy to have such a great retreat after we explored the city in pouring rain. The guesthouse is located a short tuk-tuk ride away from the city center but in... More

Unfortunately we only had one night at Sweet Cinnamon and we arrived too late in the evening for dinner. Our room was beautifully made up with fresh flowers scattered all over the bed. The bathroom was large and airy, as was the room. The bed was very comfortable. We met the owner, Derek, the next morning and he & his... More

Clean and comfortable B & B. Lovely friendly staff who made us feel very at home. A short tuk tuk ride into the centre of Kandy but away from the the noise and traffic. Breakfast was lovely - the kids loved the pancakes and waffles. We had dinner one evening which was very tasty but much more expensive than you... More
